MrsP posted British expat looking to move to Dubai on the United Arab Emirates forum on April 14, 2014:
Hi all, Can anyone advise me on how easy it is to get a working visa for Dubai? My friends is applying for lots of hotel jobs and she tells me that the employer will sort out all visa details I'm not sure how true this is. Surely the hotels will employ local to save hassle. I have been to Dubai many times and the hotel staff are of great standard so I don't know what an expat could bring. I live in the philipines and the amount of paperwork we had to do for our working visas was phenomenal!! Thanks in advance

Hi Everybody, I got a job in Alain as a school teacher with the salary package of 3400 AED including accommodation and transportation. just want to know whether pay package is sufficient to survive in this country.
taqi014 replied on April 03, 2014 with:
Al Ain is not as much expensive as dubay is. 3400 is enough if you are single!
ceekay21 replied on April 01, 2014 with:
Hi there, Yes you can definitely survive on 3400dhs/month, if all you are paying for is food (to cook or cheap fast food), phone, and other basic necessities. How much you spend each month depends on your lifestyle but it is enough for the basics (no gym membership, frequent fancy restaurants, spa appointments etc).

Hi, I am non muslim who's married to a emirati man (UAE), we have one son. I ask him for divorce and he agreed, but he said once we got divorce my visa (husband visa) will immediately cancelled and will send me back to my country. The worst part is I cannot have my baby too. What can I do??? Now I am trying to find a job here in UAE so I will have an employment visa so I can still see my baby. My questions, is it true evrything he said ?do i have any right for my baby or i can get any support?? pls help
ceekay21 replied most recently with:
Yes, it is true, and it happens all the time. How about you just get on a plane and leave with your baby? Or like you said, try to find a job in the UAE. Good luck.

Hi! I really need help with this question as no one seems to have an answer. I take medication for anxiety. IT IS A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE. I can't just stop taking it - it's dangerous to do so. I don't want to go through w this (teaching in the Middle East) and have them taken away OR be jailed for 4 years. Thank you for your help!

The prudent option is to take a letter from the perscribing physician attesting that they prescribed the meds for you. Only bring with you want you need for the length of your trip, plus maybe 20% just in case. But the other poster is right, we only went through Immigration screening, didn't even see a customs area. But this was Dubai, Abu Dhabi might be different.
